Specialist education company Intuition Inc. has bought Educational Multimedia Group, a going concern, and Unlimited Inc., an e-learning supplier that went into liquidation for undisclosed sums. Intuition chief executive David Harrison says that the firm will launch a dedicated computer-literacy division on the back of the two acquisitions. According to Harrison, Intuition's clients had been requesting information technology training for some time and the company had been in talks to acquire either or both companies for a while. Currently, all Intuition's e-learning courses are provided via the web or customer intranets.
